More Throwbacks: The Real Ghostbusters

Long story short, for the first time in 25 years, I've rewatched all the episodes of The Real Ghostbusters. Also for the first time, in chronological order now that everything is on Youtube. I remembered all over again how much this show meant to me. If Harry Potter and my other favorite stories were past relationships, this show was my first love (well, it was more like Peter Venkman, but whatever). All the strong mixed feelings I have can be found on my TV/Movie Blog here along with a bunch of random posts I have while watching the series.

With that said, I'm so glad Ghostbuster's never made it big enough for fandom to jump on Livejournal back in the 00's. I would not be able to handle the wank. I only say that because when it comes to Peter Venkman, I can give Snapewives a run for their money. It would not be pretty.

Glad to meet another fan of RGB! :D Peter needs more fans, and I'm sure he'd agree with me on that point!

It was never a fandom that made it to LJ, but there's been TONS of fanfic about it by ladies way older than us who and I quote, "Think Peter suffers beautifully".

Go back in my Dreamwidth blog, and you'll find exactly what I think about that. *twitches*

But on a lighter note, Peter means a ton to me. He's my favourite cartoon character ever!

Reading your posts and Peter's article on Fanlore, I doubt I'd like the fanfiction that much. I mean, I would have loved it if the show explored how all the RGB characters reacted to whatever emotional baggage they may have had, which would have lead to some awesome backstory and storytelling, but the fanfiction sounds WAAAYY too much. -_-

Yeah, to say the fanfic is too much is an understatement. I read a story once that solely revolved around Peter getting hit by a car and severely injured. >.<

In addition to how sick that premise is, come on. Peter's a cartoon character! You can't hurt a toon, they get slammed around all the time! Did Roger Rabbit teach these people nothing? ;P
